Where you are held accountable for your convictions and record

Not to beat a dead horse (and yes, I know this horse is dead), but just wanted to point out that riders from Reston are paying $17 a day for parking and rail. Imagine how much it will be riding all the way from Ashburn? This is looking like the waste that those of us who opposed it said it would be.

Oh, and WMATA is considering another fare increase…

Well, at least the developers will be happy

Wait. What? They are bombing Free Syrian forces? That can’t be right. Here, let me look this up. Oh shit! Are you kidding me? So the Russians lied and are still lying and that buffoon Kerry and Obama do nothing? If it was other countries that this happened in, Kerry would have been thrown off a 20 story building to the street below and Obama would have been jailed, awaiting trial for crimes against the state and humanity. But not in this country because stupidity and naivety in our administration is lauded and hailed.

By the time these clowns finish their tenure, America will be so hated and hog tied that we will never regain prominence and standing in the world again. Weren’t we considered the beacon and shining light of Democracy, that all other countries wanted to emulate? If we go socialist, will the other small bastions of freedom follow suit in short time? Does anyone have a contact for the new Sons of Liberty? I think the time is way past due.

Indeed, it seems that most science is not settled.

If science that actually follows the Scientific Method — with repeatable experiments and control groups — can be so “un-settled”, how can climate “science”, with no experiments whatsoever, and no control groups whatsoever, possibly be “settled”?

I have been watching the Donald Trump phenomenon over the past few weeks with detached amusement. I think that I speak for many when I say that it is great to finally see someone (anyone!) stand up to these outrage mobs and tell them to STICK IT. If nothing else, Trump is showing the blueprint for how to deal with the Left’s outrage mobs.

In a world where a white politician must apologize for saying that “all lives matter”, we are glad that someone isn’t afraid of them. In this world where the conservative movement has ceded issue after issue, many of us are just damn tired….of the so called GOP ESTABLISHMENT! We are tired of being told to wait until the next election, while they continue to cozy up to their liberal friends. We are tired of the supplicating, weak manlets that are represented in the GOP establishment

We are TIRED. And they are either so out of touch as to not understand it, or so arrogant that they do not WANT to understand it. Meanwhile, the everyday, conservative sees degeneracy at the top amongst the ruling elite, depravity at the bottom and despair in the middle. Let’s review why:

I came of age in the early 1990s and fully supported the GOP’s “conservative revolution” in 1994. I was excited about the Contract with America. I was excited that we would finally govern on conservative principles. But Clinton was still in office. So we were told that we needed a “conservative” at the top, to go along with our GOP ruled Congress. I staunchly supported George W. Bush in 2000 (I despised McCain, even back then). There were many out there just like me.

What did we get for our efforts?

- We got quasi-open borders where on the ground we witnessed as our schools were overrun by the mestizo children of illegals and our streets were littered with trash. We fought back and were called “racist” for our efforts to save our communities. We were called “racists” BY “CONSERVATIVES” who insisted that the illegals were “natural conservatives” or something. We are told that we are going to become “the next Brazil”. So we helplessly watched as once beautiful communities were transformed into mini 3rd world hell holes. Oh, and meanwhile, the people who criticize us live in Lilly white, gated AND guarded communities, while preaching to us that “diversity is strength”. We NEVER had a national debate on this topic. We were told by our elites that we must take this.

It has been 21 years, since the GOP’s “conservative revolution”, and STILL NO SIGN OF A WALL on the border! They lectured us, telling us that open borders is an “act of love” or that building a wall shows you “have no heart”. This rhetoric coming from people who say that they are CONSERVATIVE.

Oh, and we are told by these same people that Israel must be defended and should have a wall (which they have a magnificent wall that was funded by us), but they don’t feel the same about the United States.

- We got constant ceding of ground on the culture war. They backed down on every single debate.

- The establishment sucks up to the left so that they can attend the hip cocktail parties and make nice money. Meanwhile, we are thrown under the bus.

- After 9/11/2001, we got a grand nation building effort that cost of  more than $2 Trillion and counting instead of going overseas to unleash our military to completely obliterate our Islamist enemies with extreme prejudice. Anyone who called for naming and destroying this enemy was fired or discredited. Oh, and btw, let’s have open borders and IMPORT MORE TERRORISTS!

- We watched as “conservatism” was turned into a BUSINESS (Nay, a racket) that many of us call “Conservative, Inc”. If you want to see how it operates, just make a lunchtime visit to one of the many fancy dining establishments in downtown DC.

All of this happening while election cycle after election cycle, we are fed platitudes about “tax cuts”, “liberty” and evoking the name of Ronald Reagan.

Many of us have had enough. Enough with the platitudes. Enough with the ceding of ground. The elites respond by calling us “crazy” or “extreme”. But we are tired, now.

At this point, 21 years after the “conservative revolution”, I have nothing but contempt for the “establishment” and their minions and sycophants in “Conservative, Inc”. They have no principles, except making money off our backs (i.e., donations) while they ship us up the river.

This is why Trump is gaining traction right now. No, I do not expect him to win, but if he’s still in the race next year and still has the same message, then I will be voting for him. Should he lose, then I will likely sit out the general election rather than hold my nose again and vote for another weak, open borders, nation building, big government conservative that I can hardly distinguish from Hillary.

I will also tell you that the white base is starting to revolt and many are no longer listening to the establishment. All of the race baiting from the liberals and social justice warriors (enabled by the White House) is tearing the nation apart. We have grown tired of being called racist for NOT wanting to turn this country into Mexico or Brazil. We are tired of being called racist for seeing plainly that crime is largely a black problem, yet this is denied in all public quarters. We are constantly told that it is our fault that they commit crimes and destroy their own communities. Where is the full throttled, public defense for our values?

I for one have had enough. And until someone better comes along, Trump for President!

So states Marco Rubio. This, of course, has NEVER been a new revelation here at NVTH. We have been speaking that truth ever since Barry was saying “present” in the Senate when votes were being taken. I guess the jib here was pointed at Trump for just being Trump. Chris Matthews almost blew a gasket when complaining about what Rubio said.

Regardless how you feel about Trump, if you are like me, you like to see Trump “fight back” or speak his mind on all different issues and subjects. Many people who are fed up with the sterility of politics are relishing these outbursts from the egomaniac billionaire. I don’t think that Trump has any chance for the GOP ticket but it sure is fun watching him run his mouth. Politics has now been put in its proper place—sports. It fits in between professional wrestling and field hockey. If it works out as I project it to do, we should have the establishment Republican Party on its ear, where a Constitutional conservative will get the high ground. I would vote for that. In the meantime I have stocked up on extra jars of Jolly Time and am putting the Westbend popper into overtime mode. No class. Exactly what I think about all politics.

When traditionalists would argue that marriage should only be between one man and one woman and that opening marriage up to two people of the same sex would lead to polyandry, the response was that we were being ridiculous. Well, now that the SCOTUS has ruled that every state must recognize such unions, there are now groups that are now calling for – yep, you guessed it – POLYAMORY. Here is an article from a leftist publication that has already called for it.

The long term solution for the individual states will be for states to simply get out of the marriage business. Period! I disagree with Mike Huckabee’s view that we should continue to fight for traditional marriage. That horse left the barn with the election of Bill Clinton in 1992 and is a losing battle at this point.


Yes, this is a true story

I wrote about this issue over a year and a half ago on this board (click here to read it) when I predicted that the SCOTUS would indeed rule that same sex unions are legal in all 50 states. (Not bragging. That wasn’t difficult for anyone looking at the tea leaves)

Indeed, Obama has kept his promise to “fundamentally transform the United States.” We now live in a nation where a man can be called a “woman” (nay, they DEMAND you do so); where a person can change their race from white to black; where entire groups of people will marry each other; and it will essentially be illegal to be white. No wonder young whites want to change their race.

Much has happened as of late. The TSA has been in the limelight with this 95% failure rate in screening passengers. If that isn’t unnerving in and of itself, it has failed to detect 73 airport workers who are listed on the terrorist watch list. The excuse: not having complete access to the lists. There always seems to be a good excuse but excuses just don’t give me a cozy feeling when ineptness could cause me to die. And more money seems to be the cure for the left but when did money ever cure ineptness? We have seen daily with this government that it doesn’t work and that is the MANAGEMENT SIDE OF THE BUSINESS! What about the lost badges? Hundreds of them missing and there are no answers why. Feel safe yet? You think the government has your back? Think again.

Let me get to the real concern for this post. The Patriot Act came up for review and extension. People have been very concerned about the NSA and mega data from phone calls, etc., etc.,etc. And this is the Fourth Amendment of the Constitution that they site. Re:

Amendment IV

The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.

The people are suppose to have protections against the government and their snooping. Reason being, too much information in the wrong hands is dangerous to individuals. But sometimes people must willingly give the government EXTENSIVE information; about every piece of information we need to keep our public accounts secure from invading forces, i.e. Identity thieves. For some individuals the government has every bit of that information PLUS interviews, very private things asked through polygraph, etc. this information, in the wrong hands, can not only ruin someone’s complete life, but put them at risk for blackmail as well as endanger the individual, family members, personal and professional relations. This becomes the ultimate worst case scenario that no one wants to endure.

China hacked the OPM. This isn’t about Hillary explicitly but the administration in general. This information should never had an outside access. No sensitive information should have outside access. Here is a site talking about classified and secure information. So what is wrong with this picture? Here is the code. It appears that the government agencies are riddled with “oops” and “incompetents”. What we need to do is go back to paper cause computers sure aren’t cutting it where the government is concerned.
